SCB OSCA Winners enjoy a hospitality day at the CA County Ground

A fantastic hospitality day was enjoyed by the Somerset Cricket Board OSCA (Outstanding Service to Cricket Awards) winners and their guests, at the Cooper Associates County Ground on Sunday 19th August 2018.

The Somerset v Essex County Championship game was chosen to reward the volunteers who had been nominated for one of this year’s OSCA awards.

All of the volunteers attending the event had been nominated by their club or league for their outstanding contribution to recreational cricket in Somerset. These awards present a fantastic opportunity to recognise the volunteers who make cricket possible at clubs and enable the game to be enjoyed by so many at all levels.

The OSCA winners and their guests enjoyed a carvery lunch in the County Room and then had their awards presented on the pitch by Max Waller of SCCC.

All of the volunteers were then able to take advantage of their reserved seats to enjoy the game.

It is always a pleasure and an honour to reward these volunteers and the Somerset Cricket Board fully recognise the role that they play in enabling cricket to thrive and flourish in the county.

We will now be submitting 7 of our OSCA winners to the ECB to be put forward for the National OSCAs event at Lords Cricket Ground in October.
